Strange Attractor are a band known for embracing many different genres within their music. From Dingle, County Kerry, the band has built up quite a following in Ireland. They’ve performed at festivals such as Electric Picnic and The Cork Jazz Festival. They also sold out The Workman’s Club in Dublin and the PAV in Cork, as well as touring in Germany.
The band has released their first single ‘I Got This Feeling (I’m Dead)’ from their upcoming album. They have also released the video for the track.
I really liked how the video was put together it was really simple, mostly just shots of the band in different locations embracing their surroundings, proving that you can play music anywhere and still enjoy it.
On the song itself I enjoyed the jazz, pop and funk elements. They created a real feel-good vibe. The brass section in the song wasn’t something I expected to enjoy as much I did. It blended in well with the rest of the song but also stood out at times too. The electric guitar solo gave the song a little bit of a rock edge.
Overall I really enjoyed this track, it was really easy to listen to, very different but well put together vocally and instrumentally and showed that the band aren’t afraid to take risks with their music. I think this will set them apart from some bands popular today, they have the potential to be very successful.
